where is the clunking coming from?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
From under the truck, it is speed or rotation related not rpm related, lasts 10 seconds or so, not effected by braking.
It is a very fast clunk, clunk, clunk. Can't seem to feel anything in the steering wheel

front rear middle?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
John, it is really hard to tell, the sound seems to telescope around, can not pin point it because going 35-50 mph, it will do it a few times in 10 miles or so, sounds very destructive

have you checked the drive shaft and u joints

I have looked at them and don't see any play or looseness that I can detect

Very intermittent, once it does it then stops it may be serve rail miles before doing it again
